ANNOUNCEMENTS

Terryl Givens’s four-part lecture series continues through December

terryl-givensPhilosophers and theologians through the ages have recognized that in life’s greatest transactions, human reason comes up short in detecting sufficient grounds for decision making. If belief is to have any moral value whatsoever, then the human will must be involved in the choice to believe. Otherwise, belief would be forced rather than a matter of choice. The ambiguity of evidence, the maelstrom of competing voices, the indeterminacy of religious claims is not a defect in the plan: it is the precondition for its effective implementation.

In this four-part lecture series, the Maxwell Institute’s Terryl Givens will discuss “The Choice to Believe.”

9/23—Lecture 1, “The Doors of Faith” (Watch online now)
10/21—Lecture 2, “Awful Woundedness”  | 4 PM
11/18—Lecture 3, “Great Plan of Happiness”  | 4 PM
12/9—Lecture 4, “Worlds Without End”  | 4 PM

This lecture series is sponsored by the Office of the Associate Academic Vice President for Undergraduate Studies and the Neal A. Maxwell Institute for Religious Scholarship.

MAXWELL INSTITUTE PODCAST EPISODE #97

Our wild hope, with Reverend Dr. Andrew Teal

When Latter-day Saint apostle Elder Jeffrey R. Holland visited Oxford University in England last year, he became fast friends with Reverend Dr. Andrew Teal of Pembroke College. The two of them hit it off so well that Elder Holland invited Dr. Teal to Utah to attend General Conference for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and to visit Brigham Young University.

Rev. Teal spent time at the Maxwell Institute where he sat down with Blair Hodges to talk about his life as a chaplain, about inter-religious dialogue, about faith, hope, and charity, and all sorts of other things.
